    Default "In one week Wanted has done better business than Kambakkht Ishq" - Boney Kapoor

    Celebrations are in order. But the Wanted party has been postponed by a week. "Our director Prabhu Deva got caught up in an assignment in Kerala. So we've postponed the party for next week. We can't celebrate without Prabhu," says Boney emotionally.

    Boney has not been so excited in a long time. "The collections of Wanted speak for themselves. In the first week, it has done better business than Kambakkht Ishq did in its entire run. There was gun-firing between two sections of clashing Salman fans in a theatre named Rishi in Bulandshaher."

    And yet Wanted is supposedly a slow-starter in the multiplexes. Isn't it? Boney retorts, "Let Aditya Chopra make films for multiplexes. I'm happy reaching out to the masses."

    Commenting on why Dil Bole Haddipa didn't do well, Boney says, "Their intended USP was the Punjabi culture. Ironically, the film didn't even open well in Punjab. How does one explain this? Their other USP was Rani Mukherjee dressed as a man. But old-time heroines like Asha Parekh and Saira Banu have done the man thing long ago. And they were buxom ladies therefore tantalizing in their cross-dressing. With due respects to her amazing talent, Rani looked like a school boy."

    Feeling on top of the world, Boney says, "The corporatized culture that has seeped into filmmaking is not working. The corporate guys know only about paper-work, nothing about filmmaking. We need individual producers with vision to bail the industry out of its present crisis. I've made 30 films. But I still feel I've just started with Wanted."

    Apart from the No Entry sequel, Boney will also finally start a film with his mesmeric wife Sridevi. "If I don't, her fans will kill me. I've heard a script I've liked."
